If at a quick glance you think this agricultural exhibit sounds like it will bore you to tears, glance again!

But anyone who has seen Living with the Land would argue that it’s definitely a must-see attraction.
Make a connection with what goes in your mouth
There’s a very good chance that you won’t think about food the same way after this gentle 14-minute boat ride takes you through several different nations’ agricultural advances and experimental plant growing environments. You’ll sail past tropical greenhouses where bananas, peanuts and rice are grown and see the Aquacell’s alligators and catfish as you float along.
Learn how new concepts are being tested to enhance food production and see the actual greenhouse where many vegetables are grown for use in Epcot restaurants.
Tip: To avoid long lineups, catch this show early in the morning or after dark.
